New meat licensing system

supports farming families

New Democrat MLA Brittny Anderson says new meat licensing

system will make it easier for B.C. families to buy, serve, and

enjoy locally raised beef, pork, and poultry. Farmers in rural

parts of BC will benefit under this new meat licensing system that

increases opportunities for them to sell meat products in their

home communities and in turn, supports local economies and

regional food security.

The new licensing system reflects the diversity in size of B.C.

meat processing and livestock businesses. The three new license

categories include:

• A farmgate license that allows farmers to sell from their

farmgate or at farmers markets within their regional district

and at farmers markets within a 50 kilometre radius of their

farm if they border a different regional district;

• A farmgate plus license that replaces current Class D and

E licenses. It is available provincewide and helps alleviate

ranchers’ and producers’ concerns about accessing processing

services, as well as provide new sales opportunities at farmers

markets, retail shops and restaurants;

• An abattoir license that replaces current Class A and B

licenses. It is synchronized with existing business and license

procedures and will continue to offer fully inspected meat

production with no restriction on volume or sales within BC.

The new licence framework follows in-depth consultation with

ranchers, abattoir operators, local governments and meat producer

organizations.

All licences will be valid for a five-year term and will be effective

Oct. 1, 2021, with existing licensees transitioning automatically.

Emergency Support

Services need

volunteers

The Regional District of Central

Kootenay (RDCK) is currently seeking

volunteers to join our Emergency Support

Services (ESS) team to help others

during emergencies.

In emergencies, ESS supports the people

impacted in many ways. First and

foremost, you may be able to offer a

friendly ear to comfort someone who has

just had to evacuate their home. Then

we help with practical considerations like

coordinating accommodations, meals

and other supports based on the people’s

needs. It is tremendously rewarding, and

a great way to give back to your community.

It can even be fun!

Full training will be provided.If you

are interested, or if you need more information,

Nelson Hydro turns off automatic reclosers

For the safety of our community, customers

and our forests, Nelson Hydro has turned

off the automatic reclosers on our distribution

lines as a wildfire safety measure.

Automatic reclosers can quickly restore

power after outages, but they can also multiply

the fire risk from damaged lines as they

produce sparks by design. During times when

the fire danger rating is high to extreme, the

reclose setting is turned off to avoid the potential

of starting interface fires.

This results in more frequent and longer

outages since, without the reclosers, crews

need to respond to patrol the lines and manually

restore power once the issue has been

identified.

What is a recloser?

In electric power distribution,

automatic circuit

reclosers (ACRs) are a class

of switchgear that is designed

for use on overhead electricity distribution

networks to detect and interrupt momentary

faults. Also known as reclosers or auto reclosers,

ACRs are essentially high voltage rated

circuit breakers with integrated current and

voltage sensors and a protection relay, optimized

for use as an overhead network distribution

protection asset.

For overhead distribution networks, the

majority of faults are transient, such as

lightning strikes, surges or foreign objects

(branches, birds) coming into contact with the

exposed distribution lines. By this logic, 80%

of outages can be resolved by a simple re-close

operation as they make quick work of many

line faults.

The recloser detects a power surge, momentarily

interrupts electricity flow, and then automatically

recloses its contacts to restart flow

down the affected line.

Reclosers usually try restarting a line two

to three times before giving up and “locking

out” a line. Sometimes multiple attempts are

needed to do the job, such as when high-temperature

electrical arcing at the site of the fault

burns away hung trees or tree limbs.

Under the wrong conditions, such arcing

and ignition can obviously spark a fire.

We thank you for your understanding as we

strive to keep everyone safe this summer.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF THOMAS “TOM” AMATTO, 1962-2020:

Mr. Tom Amatto of Lethbridge,

Alberta passed away June 3,

2020 at the age of 57. Tom

was born in Nelson, BC and

his heart was always in the

Kootenays, a place he called

home more than once in his

life. Though he passed away

in Alberta he lived in Nelson

and Kaslo for years. Tom was

a talented Auto Body mechanic

and painter, and loved to

restore and deck out classic

cars. He was thrilled when he

opened his own shop in Kaslo

called “Mel and Joe’s Modefetorium”,

a dream for him.

Tom’s humour was sharp and

quick witted, and he loved to

share this with all his many

friends. Football and sports

were a passion for Tom and

you could always catch him in

front of a game. Tom was most

proud of his daughter and

grandchildren, affectionately

known as Grampa Tommy

Gun. Tom was a great and loyal

friend and kept in touch with

many people. Tom is survived

by his daughter Jaime (Greg)

Bratland of Okotoks, Alberta,

their children Jack and Georgia;

as well as his sister Geri

(Glen) Pottinger and their son

Josh. Tom was predeceased by

his parents Mel and Joe Amatto,

and his Grandparents Tom

and Harriett Hawes and Frank

and Marietta Amatto. Tom is

greatly missed by numerous

friends and family in BC and

Alberta. Finally, Internment

will be Wednesday, August 4,

2021 at 11am in the Nelson

cemetery. All are welcome to

come and celebrate Tom’s life.

Kids, get your trout heads in the game!

Kids must submit

their rainbow or

bull trout heads to one

of four local depots by

the end of July to participate

in the August 1

draw.

The youth Kootenay

Lake Angler Incentive

Program is running for

the summer. By fishing

for rainbow and bull trout in the main

body of Kootenay Lake, kids 15 and under

are actively contributing to local conservation

efforts to protect the iconic kokanee.

So far there are 30+ age-appropriate

kids’ prizes, like kayaks, fishing rods and

zipline adventure packets to be divided

between the two kids’

prize draws one on

August 1 and one on

October 1.

Encouraging anglers

of all ages to catch and

retain Kootenay Lake

trout gives the juvenile

kokanee a chance to

grow. The rainbow and

bull trout are suppressing

the survival of the kokanee, the primary

food source of these predators.

In the first year of the program, more

than 11,000 rainbow and bull trout heads

were submitted, greatly assisting juvenile

kokanee recovery in Kootenay Lake.

and bull trout abundance faster than any

other recovery action implemented to date...

We anticipate this last year has made significant

steps towards the goal of recovering

kokanee and the Kootenay Lake trophy

trout fishery.” Molly Teather, Fish Biologist,

Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource

Kootenay Lake fishing report

The lake has warmed up to a nice, comfortable swimming temperature.

That’s usually not the best for fishing temperature, however

our guides have been busy and they are catching fish.

Most morning trips have produced a few fish each day. The surface

fishing has slowed down, so we have been fishing mostly deep

lately. Bull trout have been consistent and a few rainbows have been

chomping in the early morning or later in the evening.

What are they biting on? On Kootenay Lake, it’s been croc spoons on

the surface for rainbows and bulls in the early morning or late evening.

And throughout the day, it’s been better on the down riggers.

Anywhere between 100 160 ft has been producing.

Hope this helps with your next adventure.

Tight lines……….

Would your acreage benefit from soil amendment?

Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres within 55 km

that would benefit from using their Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and

hay fields are good options.

Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a Qualified Professional performing

soil sampling, obtaining government authorization and delivery costs of Celgrow

soil amendment based on access with a large truck/pup combination.

Acreage should be able to accommodate at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two

major components of Celgrow are individual wood fibres lost from the pulping

process and surplus bacteria from the wastewater biological treatment

facility. Wood fibres enhance soil moisture retention and bacteria are a good

source of soil nutrients. The landowner is responsible for spreading and incorporating

Celgrow into their soil.

The original tourist map was the brainchild and creation of

who drew and hand painted the original map to scale.

We have always admired the West Kootenay Map, and so

when offered, jumped on the opportunity to keep this little

treasure in local hands. It fits neatly into our stable of visitor

Tourism relief fund

The Tourism Relief Fund, administered by Canada’s regional

development agencies and Innovation Science and Economic

Development Canada (ISED), supports tourism businesses,

non-profits, and organizations to adapt operations to meet

public health requirements while investing in products and

services to facilitate future growth.

With a budget of $500 million over two years (ending

March 31, 2023), including $50 million specifically dedicated

to Indigenous tourism initiatives, and $15 million for national

initiatives, this fund will position Canada to be a destination

of choice when domestic and international travel is once again

safe by:

• empowering tourism operators to create new or

enhance existing tourism experiences and products to

attract more local and domestic visitors

• helping the sector reposition itself to welcome international

visitors by offering the best Canadian tourism

experiences we have to offer the world

Tourism Relief Fund projects will focus on:

• Product development: For example, projects that

enhance tourism experiences; help tourism businesses

adapt to the ‘new normal’ and modernize their offerings;

and, encourage the adoption of more environmentally

sustainable and inclusive practices.

• Destination development: For example, projects that

position communities to take advantage of post-pandemic

opportunities through strategic planning for

medium- to long-term investments, as well as supporting

destination development prospects in line with objectives

set out in the Federal Tourism Growth Strategy.

OKAN (who fuse Afro-Cuban roots

with jazz), DEAFinitely Dope (an artist that

breaks barriers and brings hip hop to the deaf

community), Yolanda Sargeant (acclaimed

singer-songwriter and black cultural creator),

singer-songwriter based in Moh’kinstsís

Treaty 7 Territory), and Junia T (a rapper

from Toronto who has been long-listed for

SUDOKU

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken

down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the

numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and

box. Each number can appear only once in each row,

column and box. You can figure out the order in which

the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues

already provided in the boxes. The more numbers

you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Selkirk College researchers

focus on rural public

transportation

The federal government’s effort to create a stronger and

more sustainable public transportation system nationwide

is getting some analytical assistance from Selkirk College’s

Aplied Research & Innovation Centre.

With a team of researchers and post-secondary partners

from across Canada, Dr. Sarah-Patricia Breen’s application

to the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council’s

(SSHRC) knowledge synthesis grant on mobility and public

transportation was ranked first amongst the 27 funding

recipients. Work started last month on the Navigating Rural:

Place-Based Transit Solutions for Rural Canada project that

will synthesize and critically assess existing rural transit literature

in order to clearly identify the range of rural barriers

and how these barriers vary by place.

“There are so many new and innovative options related to

transit these days, it’s so far beyond traditional fixed-route

transit,” says Breen, who is the Selkirk College-based BC

Regional Innovation Chair in Rural Economic Development.

“However, rural communities continue to struggle

with establishing and maintaining sustainable public transit.

Given the amount of new funding that the federal government

will be distributing in support of transit in the coming

years, it’s exceptionally important that we provide a clear

understanding of the range of barriers rural communities

face and how current and future programs can best help

address these gaps.”

Heat Wave 2021:

Monitor elderly in the

community!

BC’s extreme heat over the next several days

has the province’s leading voice for seniors

care and living providers urging everyone to

monitor elderly family members, friends and

neighbours. Environment Canada has issued

a heat warning that is expected to begin Friday

and continue through Tuesday, with temperatures

exceeding 35 degrees in many parts

of the province.

BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA)

and EngAge BC is asking members of the

public to check in with their elderly friends,

relatives and neighbours to ensure they’re

drinking plenty of water, staying in a cool

place, and feeling well.

“The record-breaking heat is a concern

for seniors living in the community, so it is

therefore important to ensure vulnerable

populations and the elderly are not succumbing

to heat-related illnesses,” says BCCPA &

EngAge BC CEO Terry Lake. “We strongly

encourage British Columbians to check in

with our elderly friends and family members,

as they are particularly impacted by this

uncomfortably warm weather.”

Extreme heat and poor air quality are

can be dangerous for the elderly and those

with respiratory issues. They’re at a greater

risk for heat illness as their bodies can’t

immediately adapt to sudden temperature

changes. Seniors can be less sensitive to these

changes and might not even realize they’re

overheating.

If someone you know is exhibiting signs of

heat illness that can’t be resolved by drinking

water and cooling off, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Preventing heatstroke in seniors

Heatstroke is a serious medical condition

that requires emergency attention. If left

untreated, it can cause damage to the brain,

heart and kidneys, and can be fatal. Taking

the following precautions can reduce the risk

of heat illness among seniors.

Take note of the seniors’ health conditions

and medications. Check if they’re taking any

prescription drugs that could impair their

ability to regulate body temperature.

Watch out for signs of overheating such

as extreme thirst, dizziness, headache, nausea,

cramps, fatigue, and cold, clammy skin.

Together with partners from the University

of Guelph, Simon Fraser University and the

Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation, a

project team of three post-secondary student

researchers are undertaking work that ranges

from mapping out innovative examples from

across rural Canada to better understanding

challenges with existing funding programs

to doing a detailed analysis of all the barriers

rural communities face when it comes

to transit. Largely desktop work, the team is

compiling and analyzing existing information,

articles, reports and websites.

“Transit literature is often dominated by

rural places that are very close to large urban

centres, so we have a better understanding of

those places,” says Breen. “Our project team

wants to build that understanding to bring in

the full range of different rural communities

across Canada. Because the challenges and

needs here in the mountains of south-eastern

British Columbia can be very different from

coastal communities or from prairie farming

communities. It’s important that we don’t

treat rural communities like they’re the same

thing.”

The federal government’s focus of using

insight and evidence to support informed

policy making is the foundation of the

It is with great

sadness that

we announce

the passing of

our wonderful

mother,

Margaret Jane

Rota (née

Rooney.)

Margaret was

born April 21, 1923 in Grangecom, Downpatrick,

Northern Ireland. She immigrated to

Canada with her parents and three siblings on

the S.S. Regina in July 1927, settling on a farm

near Saltcoats, Saskatchewan.

During WWII, she installed windshields into

aircraft in Vancouver. After the war, she worked

at the Royal Bank and decided that she wanted

to work her way around the world. Her first

stop was Calgary where she met her future

husband, Sam Rota at a Calgary Stampede

dance. After a whirlwind two week courtship,

she agreed to marry him in November and

move to Creston, BC.

Margaret had many varied interests. She

was a voracious reader and could quote long

passages of poetry by memory. She knitted

project. Other topics being explored through

this round of knowledge synthesis grants at

post-secondary institutions across the country

include focus on e-bike infrastructure,

equity and justice in public transit, active

transportation, and more. The projects will

be compiled into reports that will be received

by policy and decision makers at federal, provincial

and local levels of government.

“From a rural economic development perspective,

transit and mobility are incredibly

important,” Breen says of the Selkirk College-lead

project. “The availability and functionality

of transit systems can create jobs,

help retain residents, improve access to goods

and services, as well as helping reduce greenhouse

gas emissions.”

Breen and her team will be presenting the

findings of the Navigating Rural: Place-Based

Transit Solutions for Rural Canada project at

a national conference this fall and the report

will be made available to the public by the end

of 2021.

Margaret Jane Rota April 21, 1923—July 1, 2021

sweaters and socks and crocheted many beautiful

afghans that are treasured by her family.

Her children have paintings that she created in

her early years of retirement. Margaret canned

fruit for her family and was an excellent baker

of cinnamon buns, pies, fruitcake and whole

wheat bread. She was an original healthy

living advocate.

Margaret returned to Northern Ireland with

her sister Sally in 1977, visiting her McGouran

and Rooney cousins in Belfast and County

Down. In 1994, she toured Italy with Sam,

spending time in Calabria with his Curcio and

Rota cousins.

Margaret enjoyed contributing to her

community. She was a member of the CWL

and was the chairperson of the Kaslo PTA. She

was willing to lend a helping hand to anyone

in need. Her door was always open to her

children’s friends.

She was a loving, cherished mother. Each of

her children grew up secretly believing in her/

his heart, “I am Mom’s favourite.” It was well

into adulthood before they realized that they

all shared the same belief. When asked about

her advice for raising children, she said, “Just

love them.” ♥

Margaret is survived by her children: Debbie

(Ken), Gloria (Eckart), Mark, Sharon (Ken), Jim

and Connie. Her grandchildren loved and will

miss their loving and supportive Grandma:

Derek (Jenn), James (Leah), Kathleen (Leigh),

Greg (Katie), Kevin (Shelley), Erika (Alex),

Ryan (Jordi), Lauren (Matt), Heather, Angele,

Colette, Sheldon and 15 great-grandchildren.

Margaret was predeceased by her loving

husband of 63 years, Sam; young son Gregory;

parents Margaret Jane and John Rooney;

sisters Mary, Catherine, Ann, Susan, Sally, Josephine,

Bridget, Rosaline; brothers John, James,

Patrick, Nick; sisters-in-law Barbara, Joyce;

brothers-in-law Earl, Jimmy, Don, Art, Ross.

Margaret will be missed by her surviving

family: sisters Eileen and Sheila; sisters-in-law

Barbara, Paddy; brothers-in-law Gordie, Al and

the extended Rooney Family. Margaret will

also be missed by the Rota Family.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to

the Swan Valley Lodge Recreation Department,

818 Vancouver St., Creston, BC V0B 1G4.

At Margaret’s request, there will be no service.

Interior Health nearing

million dose milestone

Interior Health (IH) is nearing its millionth

dose of COVID-19 vaccine being administered

throughout the Interior region as the

#journey2immunity campaign continues.

“Our COVID-19 immunization campaign

is nearing the incredible milestone of one

million doses,” said Interior Health president

and CEO Susan Brown. “I want to thank the

teams throughout IH for their incredible

efforts at deploying this vaccine throughout

the region and I especially want to thank

everyone who have protected themselves

from COVID-19 by getting vaccinated.”

In total, 969,810 doses of COVID-19 vaccine

have been administered throughout

Interior Health to date. This includes over

557,598 first doses and 412,212 second doses.

“For anyone who has not had the chance

to get immunized, it’s not too late.” added

Brown. “Whether you schedule an appointment

or simply drop-in to

any of our immunization

clinics, we are continuing

to make the vaccine available

across the Interior. As

the wildfire season intensifies,

get immunized sooner

rather than later, and protect

yourself and your loved ones

from illness.”

The Interior’s vaccine rollout is a coordinated

effort between Interior Health and the

First Nations Health Authority.

How to get vaccinated

People can also get their first or second

dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by dropping in

to any IH immunization clinic or by making

an appointment.
